1930s Art Deco Resin washed Bakelite Celluloid Goldtone Metal Felt MARTHA SLEEPER Flying CHICKEN Figural Whimsical Brooch/Pin is a true treasure. Approximately 2.5" by 1" long and quite chunky with its domed belly and wide with its golden wings, this rare, eccentric whimsical and oh-so-special piece of jewelry art is authentic 1930's work of Bakelite designer Martha Sleeper, known keenly for her sense of whimsicality and for her inclusion of other materials like celluloid, wood, mica, metal, felt and gimp details in her very special creations. A former Hollywood starlet and swimsuit designer, read more about her and see more of her work in my book The Bakelite Collection. Write with questions on how to order it. Wonderful painted eyes and facial detail of superb expression! Golden wings attached by grommets. Felt cockscomb is adorable. Little feet are too! Brooches like these comprised of separate elements and details in non bakelite materials are her hallmark, and their impact make them among the most sought after treasures in the figural Bakelite jewelry world. Excellent vintage condition.
